Partnership with Purple Rainbow

The Elizabeth Coteman Fund is proud to partner with Purple Rainbow.

Purple Rainbow was set up in memory of Seth Goodburn, who was diagnosed with Pancreatic Cancer in 2014, aged just 49. He sadly died just thirty three short and heart-breaking days later, leaving behind his beloved wife Lesley.

Seth asked Lesley to share the story of their journey through terminal pancreatic cancer so that it might help others in the future. He wanted to improve the awareness of the signs and symptoms of pancreatic cancer, help people who have a late terminal diagnosis to come to terms with the dreadful news, help improve the experiences of people diagnosed with cancer and to raise awareness and debate about compassionate person centred care when approaching end of life.

We are pleased to be able to share this tragic, but compelling story which has also been turned into a play; the play can be viewed online on the Hospice UK website.
